Another Cool Photo

I'm very much into the ancient-as-hell photos and seeing what track & field used to be like. Track historian and Penn Relays historian Dennis Johnson dug this one up:

This is John Daly of the Irish-American AC, competing on the I-AAC's home grounds at Celtic Park, New York City, in a two-mile steeple. I'm not certain of the meet, but this is from 1910-12.

Daly was the steeplechase silver medalist in the St. Louis Olympics of 1904.
